flu shot before pregnancy

My husband and I are trying to get pregnant again. I just got my flu shot. I'm not pregnant yet but would like to try again this month. Is it okay to try even though I just got it. how long should I wait?
I didn't realize you could get a "preservative free" one. I never did before. I had a flu shot when I was pregnant last time and we have a healthy 2 year old. Just nervous and confused on reading online now!

From what I have heard - doctors recommend that you get a flu shot if you are pregnant.  It should have no affect on you becoming pregnant.  Good luck!

what if conception is just happening or happened in the last few days? or if I become pregnant next week? do you think the preservatives will hurt the embroyo?

i just got my flu shot last week and i told the nurse about the possibility of being pregnant, she said it was fine to take one. they would only have given me a different type of flu shot if i was actually pregnant.
